Introduction: Half Baked

Picture of Half Baked

I Looooove cookie dough... chocolate chip cookie dough to be exact, at the same time I would vote cookies as my last meal. The problem is , I just can't have cookie dough in a cookie. If i bake it... it's not dough anymore... it evolves into the next thing I love. So for cookie dough addicts and cookie lovers like me... I present the solution! Cookie dough cups!

Add the egg, to the dry ingredients, salt and vanilla followed by the melted butter and that gorgeous chocolate. 
Mix them together furiously until it forms a dough.

Step 5: Molding Those Lil Cups

Line the bottom of your mini muffin pan with cupcake liners. (That's right we're using the underside!) Now mold the dough over the liners. Alternate the dough to give the cookies some breathing space so the cups don't stick together.

Step 6: Bake!

Bake the cups on high for 180 Degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes.

These are the ingredients you will need for that lovely dollop of cookie dough ...

1. 120g butter, room temperature

4. 2 tablespoons milk
5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
6. 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Step 8: That Cookie Dough

Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, followed by the milk, vanilla . Mix viciously until you get a creamy consistency. Mix in the  flour until a dough forms. Finally, stud that cookie dough with as many mini chocolate chips as you like! (more is always better)

Step 9: Now Fetch Those Cookie Cups

Remove the cookie cups from the oven and let them cool...When they are cooled, remove the cupcake liners from the inside of the cups.  You are just 5 minutes from biting into these babies, just contain yourself a little longer.... got your ice-cream scoop ready?

Step 10: Assemble

This is really up to you , (but I would go camping just as an excuse to eat smores) so I filled the bottom of my cups with mini marshmallows and a small square of chocolate . Then top it with a dollop of that amazing cookie dough. Can you spot the hidden mickey?

Not too long, about an hour ? baking time is only around 20-25 minutes, and if you have strong mixing arms or a machine,the rest is easy as pie... cookie dough pie.

I got them from a a small sweet shop near my home, but you can get these online from retailers like or try search terms like micro marshmallows or cereal marshmallows on amazon!
